Dear Members of the Class of 2010: 



On behalf of the Trustees, faculty, and staff of Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, I am pleased to 
congratulate you on your graduation from MCLA. 

You should be proud of the baccalaureate or master's degree you earned from MCLA. This is a 
significant accomplishment, one that will prove valuable to you as you pursue your career or continue 
your education. It represents countless hours of study, a willingness to explore new ideas, and a 
commitment to challenging yourself. It is also a symbol of the friendships you made, the connections you 
built with your professors, and the leadership you demonstrated in clubs, activities, and athletic teams. 
For many of you, your degree is a mark of your ability to balance work and family commitments while 
pursuing your education. 

As you begin the next chapter of your lives and careers, I hope you will look back at your time at MCLA 
with fondness. Please keep in touch and visit often. Our alumni are great role models for the next 
generations of students. You are the best examples we have of how an MCLA education prepares you to 
succeed. 

Everyone here at the College wishes the best for you in all your future endeavors. I wish you every 
success and look forward to calling you fellow alumni. 

Sincerely 




A Message from the President

"Graduation is only a concept. In real life every day 

you graduate. Graduation is a process that goes on 

until the last day of your life. If you can grasp that, 

you'll make a difference." - Arie Pencovici
